S03-E16 John Glenn describes his historic space flight in 1962 at a press conference immediately after his return.bMr. Glenn answers questions from the national press about orbiting the earth three times. Some of the topics of the nearly 50-minute press conference included experiments he conducted, malfunctions of the equipment, his impression of seeing the earth and stars from the spacecraft, and other topics.

In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents to provide a broader context for Mr. Glenn’s and NASA’s achievement: first, a bibliography of John Glenn would go on to eventually serve as a distinguished U.S. Senator, second, a history of space flight, third, an overview of the Mercury 7 astronauts of which Mr. Glenn was a member, and finally an overview of the space race between the Soviets and the U.S.
